I became a bodybuilder about two years before going vegan and despite popular misconception, my muscle mass has not decreased. My body fat percentage did decrease and I have lost two or three pounds.

When I still ate meat to "supplement" my hungry muscles, I contemplated going vegan because a friend referred me to a site on vegan testimonials. My first thought was, "Will I get enough protein? Will I become the skinny person I once was?"

After doing some quick, but effective research, I found out that all the animal protein, which the majority believes is important for athletic performance, is in truth bad for us.

To get my protein, I eat a lot of beans, homemade whole-wheat bread, and any other protein rich carbohydrate.

Hello Bear Grylls, hehehe, I'm just kidding, BUT not kidding that this is the name of a man (ex-BritishSpecialForces) who has a survival billing here in the UK on *tv* (and elsewhere no doubt)
He's absolutely fab and seems to want to have a go at anything to show how we can survive in different parts of the world.

Anyway you know RobertCheeke don't you? (www.veganbodybuilding.com) (.ORG too)

Bodybuilding, yes I aspire to its influence on me and my physique, along with other fitness.

ALSO, www.VeganFitness.net FORUM is very essential for any enthusiast (or amateur).

I'm just a fan of the man, Bear Grylls. I love his show that airs on the Discovery Channel in the US, Man vs. Wild.

I've seen pictures of Robert Cheeke, although I do not know much about him. Does he have a website that describes his routines and diet? He has a great physique!

One of the sites that had an account of vegetarianism written, was www.stevepavlina.com. It is a site about personal development. It has many interesting topics ranging from quiting coffee to lucid dreaming.
